She will be glad to help you through the maze of tax forms. 2111 McDuffie, Houston, TX 77019 Telephone: 713/526-6147 CREATIVE CHANGE by Deborah Bell "Creating Change" is the name of the annual conference sponsored by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute (NGLTF). NGLTF is the nation's oldest national gay & lesbian civil rights organization. It's work includes lobbying, organizing, educating and demonstrating for lesbian and gay equality. I was fortunate enough to attend the 1991 conference held over Veteran's Day weekend in Alexandria, VA. While other Texans were there, I was the only one from Houston, so it was rather lonely, even among the some 1000 activists from around the country who attended. I was there doing coverage for KPFT, attending workshops, and collecting information regarding the state of the Queer Nation. My impression is that we are one fantastic People. I have attended many conferences over my years as an activist and this one by far was the best. Why? Because of the excellent way it was put together, and the level of commitment and spirit of the people involved. Sensitivity training had been held at the conference hotel (The Old Colony Inn) for any staff members who would be in direct contact with the attendees. The conference started with special sessions which included: The People of Color Organizing Institute; Campus Organizing; and, Diversity Training. I attended Diversity Training and found it to be a wonderful bonding, healing, and learning experience. One hundred and fifty people - almost all were Lesbian or Gay - united to do intensive work designed to help us all understand where we are coming from, and for all of us to GET OVER IT! That is putting it into simple terms, but it expresses what took place. Several themes emerged from the gathering, including censorship of Lesbian and Gay artists. Tim Miller and Holly Hughes, who recently were awarded NEA grants after being rejected by the arts agency last year, participated in a performance gala along with Kate Clinton, Phranc, Marga Gomez, and Steve Langley. By the way, Phranc and Holly Hughes are lovers. Kate Clinton is the main squeeze of Urvashi Vaid, the Executive Director of NGLTF. I could not attend the gala, but did get to spend time talking with Robin Tyler, Lynn Lavner, Phranc, Tim, and Kate. It is apparent that we (The Lesbian and Gay Movement) not only are creating change, but seeing to it that it is creative change as well. Political developments discussed at the conference included both defeats and victories: * The Congressional Resolution calling for an end to the military ban on gay, lesbian, and bisexual servicemembers, introduced by Rep. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), and Ted Weiss (D-NY). * Magic Johnson's disclosure of his HIV+ status, which people of color activists called a "galvanizing wake-up call to America on,the AIDS crisis." * The veto of the California Gay & Lesbian Civil Rights Bill, AB101, by Governor Pete Wilson. * The shocking 42% increase in anti-gay & lesbian violence in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, Boston, and Minneapolis/St. Paul from 1989- 1990. * The new right wing strategy of anti-gay referenda and constitutional amendments, including civil rights repeal campaigns in Denver, St. Paul, and Concord, CA. I* The November 5 vote upholding the domestic partnership law in fSan Francisco. The passing of a Gay/Lesbian jRights Bill in Connecticut and 'Hawaii, as well as in the icities of Ames, IA; Cincinnati, [OH; Tampa, FL; Portland, OR; fKey West, FL; and others. '* The changing of the way the jDepartment of Justice's 'community Relations Service jresponds to hate crimes by .passing Congressional Report [language on an appropriations Lbill in October; the CRS must rnow fully respond to gay jbashings and other homophobic and religious incidents. ,The 1992 conference will be [held in Los Angeles. I hope I that I won't be the only PHoustonian there. WomynSpace Retreat Set for Stonehaven Womynspace is going back to Stonehaven!
